We make disposing of lead aprons easy, by offering customizable solutions that are straight-forward and compliant during every step of the process.

Recycling designed to fit your needs: We have developed recycling solutions for large and small quantities of lead aprons.

Documented compliance: Once received and recycled or disposed of properly, we'll issue a certificate, documenting lead aprons were received and managed in accordance with all regulations.

How and why, at a glance

Lead aprons must not be disposed of as normal trash. The aprons are made with lead and can contaminate the soil in a landfill, posing a health hazard. Lead is very dangerous when handled incorrectly.
